A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more hair relaxers for her beauty salon.

Fatuma's story

Fatuma is 28 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is married and has one child who is currently in school. For the past eight years, Fatuma has been working hard to manage her beauty salon, where she does hairdressing.

To help expand her business, Fatuma has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more hair relaxers for her beauty salon and will help Fatuma to generate greater profits and take good care of her child. Fatuma hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand the beauty salon into a bigger parlor.

Fatuma is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Fatuma who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
